Our two-year Graduate Programme features three different eight-month rotations, across three different business units and departments. This structure allows you to explore diverse career opportunities while gaining insight into Danish Crown’s value chain.
As part of the Programme, you will live and work abroad (outside of Denmark) for eight months in one of our business units. Here you will broaden your perspective, experience new cultures, gain international experience and learn about Danish Crown’s international challenges and opportunities. Our team will support you with day-to-day practicalities like housing and networking, as well as with tax and insurance.
Graduates have been on exciting rotations in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Spain and more.
Learning & Development
In addition to your hands-on learning during rotations, 5 professional training and development courses are integrated into the Programme.
In the Danish Crown Graduate Programme, we prioritize continuously improving your toolbox both professionally and personally.
Being part of the Graduate Programme means that you have a wide range of opportunities to learn and develop, both professionally and personally. Much of this will come through on the job training in your rotations, where you gain broad functional insights into different business areas, as a graduate group you will also gather to participate in structured training.
You will experience 5 structured training modules covering multiple areas. A consistent thread throughout, is a deep understanding of our business units, cooperative structure and complex value chain. To support this, training is held across different Danish Crown offices and production sites with input from a diverse group of leaders, who share their leadership stories and experiences.
